You all know I've been on the hunt for a thicker hair milk or a hair cream with little to no glycerin in it. I came across a Sweet Nature by Eddie review that Good Hair Mart owner, Monique aka CoilsKinksCurls on Youtube, did on some of their products.
One of them was the Journey Hair Milk. After hearing her review and seeing that vegetable glycerin was the very last ingredient on the list sparked my interest. So much so, that right after I saw the vid, I bopped on over to http://www.fabulousblackwoman.com/ and got the 4oz size to give it a try.
Excuse the crinkles. I took the pic after I have used it quite a few times. Lol.
You know I keep my reviews pretty short and to the point. In summary: I like it.
The customer service was great and the product is pretty darn moisturizing. I really feel like my hair is ABSORBING it and it's not just sitting on top of my hair, building up. It makes my koils feel soooo soft, hydrated and fluffy. It makes my hair feel great, almost instantly. I also tried it as a leave in sealing with castor oil and did a braid out with the same soft and fluffy results. I luvd it! I also luv its consistency. It's thick and creamy and smells heavenly, like cherry vanilla.
I started falling out of luv with my old hair milk by Karen's Body Beautiful b/c what I luv'd about it back in my TWA days: its "wet"/watery, thin consistency; I now don't like about it anymore. The things veteran naturals don't tell you (I should do a post about this) is that as your hair grows out, sometimes it can grow out of certain products that used to work wonders for your hair as well. My twa luv'd the KBB Hair Milk but now that it's no longer a TWA, no mas. So now I'm rocking with this product and it's working.
Ingredients: Water, Aloe vera juice, Shea butter, Cocoa butter, Mango butter, Sunflower oil, Safflower seed oil, Coconut oil, Sweet almond oil, Wheat germ oil, Soybean oil, Vegetable glycerin
The 4oz bottle ran me $8 so the price is very reasonable. Once I run out, I will more than likely re-buy.
I want to also bring up that this is a natural product with no preservative/s in it which means, you have to use it in a timely manner or it's possible that it will be subject to spoiling. Now this doesn't mean, you have to use it up in 2 weeks but after a few months (like 2-3 I'll say), there's a good chance it's not so good anymore. Just something to keep in mind when you are dealing with 100% natural products that have water in them especially. Some, to prolong the life of these kinds of products, store some of their natural products in the fridge and that helps. Storing them in cool, dry areas of your house helps as well. It's just like organic, untreated foods, you have to eat them fairly quickly or they go bad. Maybe I will just do a post on this matter. ......
